Explore symmetry and perspective through a series of themed family activities around the Museum and think about the different ways people use art to represent their view of the world around them. Watch Iron Age metalwork demonstrations on the front lawn, design your own Iron Age mirror and take part in object handling sessions and drawing workshops (drop-in activities all day). Short talks about Time and Space in Iron Age Art at 11.00 & 13.00.

Organised in association with the European Celtic Art in Context Project (funded by the Leverhulme Trust) and the NEARCH Project (supported by the EU Commission).
